Today I am going to share with you the many benefit of diffusing the Young Living essential oils in your home on a daily basis

It has been said that when essential oils are diffused in the home, they have the ability to increase the atmospheric oxygenating molecules into the air. Oils increase ozone and negative ions in the home, which inhibit bacteria growth. This prevents and destroys existing odors from mold, cigarettes, animals, etc.

Essential oils are non-toxic to the body and do not accumulate. Scientists in European countries have found that essential oils will bond to metallics and chemicals and carry them out of the body, working as natural chelators, inhibiting these toxic substances from staying in the tissues.

Essential oils also remove dust particles out of the air and are excellent for digesting mold. When diffused in the home, they can be the greatest air filtration system. I love to diffuse my oils when I sit in my Human Touch massage chair. Not only am I getting a phenomenal relaxation treatment but my brain and cells are being highly oxygenated as well. The two together are a perfect combination!

When diffusing the oils, they reach directly to the brain by means of the olfactory system. The olfactory membranes have about 800 million nerve endings that receive micro-fine, vaporized oil particles. They enter through the sinuses into the olfactory neurons and into the olfactory bulb. The impulses are then transported to the limbic system and the olfactory sensory center at the base of the brain. Then they pass between the pituitary and pineal gland and move to the amygdala gland – the memory center where all of our emotions we have ever experienced are stored and released from. This gland is only stimulated by smell. So as we breathe the oils in as they are diffused, they can have a profound effect on our emotional bodies.

Heat destroys many of the therapeutic properties of a true essential oil so it best to forgo using the candle burner type. The best system of diffusing oils is either in a water vapor diffuser or one with a glass nebulizer. You really only need to diffuse for 15-20 minutes at a time a couple times a day or more is fine too.

One of my favorite oils to diffuse is the Thieves oil. It is a blend made by Gary Young, founder of Young Living oils.

Packed with powerful, germ-killing essential oils, the Thieves oil can help eliminate airborne bacteria and boost the immune system. Thieves oil offers protection during cold and flu season of the winter months. But this blend is best utilized day-by-day.

It offer’s a safe but flexible and powerful multi approach in the battle against germs, bacteria, fungi, and viruses—all year long.

If one person in your household gets a cold or flu and is coughing and sneezing, the germs are now in the air of the home. This is the very reason that it is passed on to the rest of your family members. And this is why a whole classroom of school kids can become ill. This is why it is so powerful to diffuse the Thieves oils in your home everyday. It can help eliminate these viruses and bacteria’s in the air.

Beat the Holiday Stress

Despite every attempt to remain cool, calm and collected throughout the holiday season, we all know this can be one of the most stressful times of the year. With the mile-long lines in the stores, a thinly stretched bank account, nagging in-laws and a few too many Christmas cookies, it’s possible for the holiday season stress to spin wildly out of control.

The good news is that it doesn’t have to. Here are three easy things you can do to make this holiday season a worry-free one:

1. Relax. Now more than ever, you need to take some time out for yourself. Though we try to squeeze every minute out of every day by cramming just one more get together or party into our schedules, we need to make an effort to carve out time to be alone too. Make sure you attend your weekly yoga class or commit yourself to enjoying a walk every afternoon. Treat yourself to a couple evenings by the fire with a mug of hot chocolate and a favorite book. If you don’t own one already, now may be the time to get a Human Touch Massage Chair, which will provide you with the therapeutic touch you need and deserve throughout the holiday season. Some might say it’s the gift that keeps on giving!

2. Simplify. Decide right now that you aren’t going to try to deliver the world this season. Think about the things that are most stressful for you about the holidays and figure out how you can reduce that added stress. If finances are tough, cut back on expensive presents and give the gift of time and attention to the ones you love instead. If you don’t have enough energy to throw a holiday party, cook the food and clean the house, ask for help or delegate some of the tasks by planning a potluck or cleaning only those rooms your guests will see. If you don’t think you can fit another obligation into your schedule, just say no. You won’t appreciate any of your holiday season if you’re too busy thinking about the next thing on your to-do list.

3. Enjoy. This is the time of the year when we get to visit with family we don’t normally see and catch up with old friends whom we’ve let slip through the cracks. Immerse yourself in the joy and festivities of the holiday season. If a pan of Christmas cookies burns or you don’t have time to buy the holiday stamps instead of using the standard ones to mail your holiday cards, don’t fret. Laugh and move on. Let the little things slide by, because, in the end, the holidays aren’t about the perfect cookies or postage stamps. They’re about living in the moment and being appreciative for the things and people we have in our lives. Make this holiday season one to remember because you enjoyed it … without the stress.
